9781490431581: The Story of Solomon Bear

When so many new toys needed batteries, cables, or winding up to keep them going, for Solomon Bear, just the Girl's hugs remained enough. All he knew was that when she held him, there was nowhere else he would rather be. All uncertainty about who he was would melt away, and everything would become bright and clear and beautiful again for him, when he remembered that loving her was his greatest reason for being.

So begins the heart-warming story of Solomon Bear.

A girl and her teddy bear have shared a promise to keep love alive in a home where it's been all but forgotten. When they are forced apart one day, Solomon Bear determines to find her at any cost! On his quest he turns to other toys for help, discovering a wisdom - and a voice - no one knew he had...

At once a children's romance and a literary fairy-tale recalling lost innocence and our innate human capacity to love. This touching tale can appeal to readers of all ages. For while a taste for porridge, marmalade, or honey might make a bear more human, Solomon would remind us: it is love that brings us all to life.

The Story of Solomon Bear follows a tradition of classic children's fairy-tales. Fans of The Velveteen Rabbit, The Little Prince, or Oscar Wilde's Fairy Tales are sure to find another friend in Solomon Bear.

Beautifully illustrated in black and white, Solomon Bear is presented as a 90 page chapter book.  Recommended for ages five and up.
